Joan's Travel Tip No. 15

Joan's Travel Tip No. 15:

This is a common-sense tip I'll pass on from something I read yesterday:  DON'T PUT CASH OR ANYTHING NEAR AND DEAR TO YOUR HEART IN YOUR CHECKED LUGGAGE.  I guess there's a lot of pilfering going on at the airports.  You can use a TSA-approved lock or have your bags shrink-wrapped (more common in European airports).  Carry anything you really value in your carry-on.    Also,  it follows that taking expensive jewelry etc might not be worth the risk (consider hotels, pick-pockets, etc.).
